At least the Cheats didn't win.
What's the protocol on rioters eating horse **** and cops being run over with four wheelers?
I can't even believe I just typed out that sentence...
Philly is a disgrace.
Hate seeing Philly win anything but the result was definitely the lesser of two evils.
The catch rules have to be revisited. I have no idea what is or isn't a catch anymore.
I can't believe Philly pulled this off with a backup QB. I thought they were done when Wentz went down. Doug Pederson is a hell of a coach.
My suggested strategy to cleaning up Philadelphia today.
Steelers should go after Malcolm Butler.
It really puts into focus how average Mike Tomlin has been for the Steelers. This year was their best shot to win it all. New England had a terrible defense this year and the rest of the AFC was a joke.
I will also throw Colbert some heavy shade for going into the season with terrible ILB depth. ILB is one of the easiest positions in football to find a multitude of athletes. How the Steelers looked at their reserves and decided that they were good enough in case of injury is beyond a rational thought. Beyond Shazier, they didn't have one comparable athlete on the roster at ILB. If you defense is predicated on one ILB running sideline to sideline, then you better have an athletic fast back up.
I still think what sums up the Steelers current state is that they fired their OC when their defense gave up 45 points in a HOME playoff game in January to a FLORIDA team with a very limited offense.
I will go on record right now, PIN IT please, that next season the Steelers will be the biggest disappointment in the NFL struggling to win 8 games.
Nick Foles is gonna be one hot commodity.
Steelers D only gave up 38 points, Ben gave up 7 on his fumble.
lol, I knew this would be the response back from someone. OK, 38 points to JAX, at HOME in JANUARY.
You're right, that is a ton better.
You are welcome.
Gee, ya think? There's some first rate detective work sparky.
Philly is a borderline looming financial basket case because of unfunded pension liabilities.
Now they tear up the city. Guess who is gonna get tapped when they come up short?
Nah, you are just being overly negative because Tomlin isn't a good coach.
There is way too much talent for the Steelers to not win at least ten games. Come playoff time, I have zero faith Tomlin won't don what Tomlin does.
Hopefully they don't re-up Bell, because that's a contract they will regret sooner rather than later. I also firmly believe they have to change the culture in that room, and he's a big part of the issue.
You simply don't need dominant RBs in the modern NFL. I can't even remember the last team with a great RB to win the SB, maybe Lynch, and that's really it in the last dozen years or more.
I don't think it's going to be a talent issue. I have seen this too many times in my life where a team underachieves one year, doesn't make the needed changes and folds like a tent the following year. I hope I'm wrong.
They blew it last year and came back and made second seed this season, so I wouldn't worry about the regular season. That really isn't where my concern is... it's that tricky postseason when coaching kind of matters as much as talent...
I just want to say that all of this is worth it because of the fact that a dude from Philly ate some poo. Always Sunny should have some fun with this.
I made a comment on that to my Dad last night early in the game. I said a big thing the Eagles had going for them was that Nick Foles was playing to get a job somewhere else.
Embarrassing human beings over there, but it's not all of them. I never understood damaging things to celebrate. Just celebrate. Have fun. Drink, party, uber home. Destroy things? No way.
I have no faith in Tomlin winning another SB. He's basically the modern day Mike Martz.
It's not all of them obviously, but it's a whole lot of them....
Look at just the last couple of weeks... i.e. how they treated Vikings fans and how they are acting now.
The city has earned their trash reputation honestly over the years.
Philly is a cesspool and as as much as I don't have much love for Pittsburgh, at least this place is respectful of other fans and most importantly, our city.
How much do you think that Neal O'Donnell gets?
tomlin isnt a good game coach, but bellichick showed his stubbornness last night and probably cost his team the title
He had to play for the 1996 Jets. I'll curse his name until I die, but at least he was punished.
how did Bellichek cost them the game? first i've heard of this
Pfft, you call that a sports riot?
I guess Philly winning is the lesser of two evils. Plus, Harrison doesn't get a ring. That's a win.
